Of course every evolutionist will claim that Darwin’s explanation of how, and why, we are here, is totally scientific, but is it? Darwin was indeed a passable scientist, and considering the level of technology of his day his book 'Of the origin of the Species' was a work of genius, however because of the limitations of the then technology, there was so much he got wrong. However even in Darwin's day, evolution was not a new idea, The earliest emergence of the idea arose in the period of the ancient Greeks where it was taught that man evolved from fish, and animals evolved from plants; however these ideas did not catch on. The reasons that the fish and plant theory did not catch on was not because it was ridiculous but because an alternative theory became popular, Spontaneous Generation. Spontaneous Generation purported that all life sprang spontaneously from mud and slime and was sponsored by such great names as Aristotle in 400 BC. Spontaneous Generation made the same mistake as Darwin, they were limited in what they could see.
